Hello, I am Dr. Aren,I have over 37 years of clinical experience,I will help with your query. Primpak C has been discontinued,hence you will need alternatives which your GP can prescribe,they are Elleste Duet , 1 and 2 mgms. The 2mgm dose is preferable.

You will need to be put on this and monitored by your GP for any problem after substitution ,in all probability this should resolve your issues.

Please rate my answer as 5 stars(stars are above and to the right of your box) ,thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
